What’s Happening to The Republic

Franklin @ September 22, 2008 # One Comment

Some days I regret not having done something. For instance, I regret not having titled one of my articles Fear and Looting in Wall Street. This was back in August of 2007, and I thought then that it was going to be seen as a will exaggeration. Fast forward to the mother of all bailouts […]

Looking for a Miracle

Franklin @ March 29, 2008 # 4 Comments

I was going to write a sardonic post about how Barack Obama is the Antichrist and why conservative Christians should vote for him to accelerate the second coming. The sad thing is that there are people out there who really think Mr. Obama is the Antichrist, so much of the punch of the post would […]

Why Current Inflation Hurts So Much?

Franklin @ February 14, 2008 # 7 Comments

The other day I wrote at www.tradingurus.com that the current inflation rate is historically low. That article was geared towards investors, and pointed out that the current administration has a lot more room to give money away to avert the current financial crisis. By the way, the idea behind www.tradingurus.com is that since American workers […]

Retailers post disappointing November sales – MarketWatch

Franklin @ December 6, 2007 # No Comment Yet

On November 15 I wrote regarding the November retail numbers: If the news is bad, the Fed will feel justified in declaring that the risk of a recession is higher than the risk of inflation, and lower the rates a little bit more. Either way, at this , the end will be the same. There […]

The Myth of Republican Fiscal Conservatism

Franklin @ November 30, 2007 # 13 Comments

Seeing Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney fight over who is more of a fiscal conservative made me think that they are actually barking up the wrong tree. You see, although the Republican Party claims to be the party of “small government”, and many fiscal conservatives vote Republican for that reason, the record shows that the […]

Dow Jones Ready for Next Leg Down

Franklin @ November 23, 2007 # 3 Comments

Two weeks ago, when the Dow had fallen about 1000 points, I said that the Dow Jones at 13,099 should see a rest. I expected at least two flat weeks and we had them within less than 1%. As I write this the Dow is at 12,930.24 (0.98% lower than the 13,099 I detected as […]

Franklin @ November 18, 2007 # 4 Comments

I just uttered two of the worst things any economist would ever want to see. And they are together, for good measure.

Dow Jones Finds A Convoluted Way to Do Nothing

Franklin @ November 15, 2007 # One Comment

Last Friday I wrote that the Dow Jones at 13,099 should see a rest. I pointed out that some statistical barriers had been broken, and that the fall should stop around there. I was wrong by 0.6%, but not much more. And then, on Tuesday, we had this huge run rally of some 300 points. […]

CNN.com agrees with TheBankruptcyNews

Franklin @ November 8, 2007 # No Comment Yet

In clear evidence that there is a liberal media conspiracy against President Bush, CNN moved in to confirm with a poll that the American people are starting to feel the pain of the failed economic policies. The following article would prove that My blog is part of the liberal media (swear I did not know) […]

From the American Dream to the American Nightmare

Franklin @ November 1, 2007 # No Comment Yet

From the American Dream to the American Nightmare How Government policy and public complacency are transforming America from an Owners society into a Renters society I should write a book about the subject, but I am lazy and busy. So I am going to write a review about the non-existing book “From the American Dream […]
